PASADENA, March 17.—Nine-year old Clarence Hinshaw, who was struck, and sustained serious injuries as a re sult, by a Pacific Electric car yester day afternoon, will recover from his injuries without serious effects upon his health. Today, though suffering from internal injuries, he appeared quite rested and told his story of how the accident happened. He was riding south on Fair Oaks, •when he heard a bell clanging behind him and wondered at the noise. Ac cording to his conception of the com pany rulings there should be no car following him on that track. He again heard the gong, and finally as it drew closer he swerved to clear the track by turning to the left instead of the right, placing him directly in the path of tho car. The lad changed his course when the car was within one car length of him, and the turn was timed so that the car struck the wheel, smashed It and hurled the rider at least fifteen feet. Internal Injuries and a gash over the eye constituted the extent of the injuries. The motorman stated that, he thought the lad would leave tho tracks on the right side and at the right moment, as the lads of this city havo a habit of doing when riding along In tho lead of a car. When he saw the lad turn "wrong it was too late check tho speed of the car. ST. PATRICK'S COLORS POPULAR IN VENICE Special to The Herald.

WOMEN GO EAST TO CONSULT ROCKEFELLER Special to The Herald. VENICE, March 17.— Grubstaked by Abbot Kinney with $1000 in gold coin and the promise of more if It is need ed, Mrs. Kinney and Mrs. M. M. Merry, representing the Venice chamber of commerce, will leave here tomorrow morning going direct to New York, where they will begin steps to secure an audience with John D. Rockefeller, before whom it is their mission to pre sent the desire of the trade organiza tion that he set aside an appropriation of approximately $300,000 to be used in the establishment of a polytechnic college here.

The names of Carnegie, Schwab, Mrs. Russell Sage and Miss Helen M. Gould have been jotted down with oth ers in a little memorandum book car ried by the women, although they claim to be absolutely satisfied that they will not have to solicit any furth er after they get through with the oil king. When asked today if she had any prejudice against Rocky's tainted wealth Mrs. Kinney laughingly replied: "Bah! We haven't time to think about taint. Walt until the school is built, then we'll have a chance to dis cuss the question, but really, we're too busy now." A site of ten acres of ground worth about $15,000 has been donated for the proposed college by David Evans, ex president of the Bank of Venice.

Burdette came out openly In favor of segregating tho "moral lepers" In the lower part of the city. The stand was taken following the reading of a set of resolutions from tho church federation calling upon the city officials to rigidly enforce the present laws against the crlba. A copy of those resolutions had been sent to every church of the federation yester day morning with the request that the congregation approve of them and send a signed petition to that effect to May or Harper. At the Temple church, at least, the plan faded away into thin air. Of an audience of almost 2500 scarcely a hundred voted at all, and of these a score were opposed to the resolutions. The Resolutions The resolutions drawn up by the fed eration are as follows: "Whereas, the daily press has In formed us that the crib district Is to be reopened and the statement has been confirmed by trustworthy investi gation: and "Whereas, to permit the reopening of this moral plague spot would Jeop ardize the purity and chastity of our sons nnd daughters and destroy their Integrity and character; and "Whereas, to permit the reopening of said district after having once driven It out of existence would be to adver tise to the world our moral decadence as well as our Inability to cope with the powers of Iniquity; and "Whereas, for our mayor and city officials to fall to exhaust every au thority within their power to suppress this crime would be to fail to measure up to the duty of their oaths of of fice; therefore, be it "Resolved, that this church and con gregation hereby express its most em phatic protest against the reopening of the crib district; and be it further » "Resolved, that we demand that tho mayor and police authorities shall Im mediately notify all owners, lessees and occupants of all premises used for Im moral purposes that the law now upon the statute books will be rigidly and impartially enforced by them." Only Scatters Women A pause followed the reading of tho resolutions and before Dr. Burdetto put the question before his congregation for the vote said: "I cannot bring this subject up before my people without being honest with myself and them. This Is a problem that has vexed civilization for thou sands of years, and it seems will con tinue* to bother us. We closed these places where all these fallen women were segregated several years ago, and It has been a question in my mind ever since as to whether wo pursued tho wisest course. "When we drovo them out of their haunts I have never been satisfied that they all became pure, sweet women and settled down In life, nor am I satisfied that they all left this city for other towns. I fear very much that by far the greater number stayed here and scattered around in the various rooming houses and hotels. "It is a question In my mind as to whether scattering an evil destroys it. I sometimes wonder whether to have a place watched by the polire who know every man that goes in Isn't perhaps a bettor thing than scattering them in the residence districts. What Police Think "In my talk with the pollen and plain clothes men their testimony proves that when we closed the red-light district before tho women scattered to the ho tels, rooming houses and lodging places, and Instead of a little area that could be watched easily they are now all over the city. "I did not want to bring: this resolu tion before you without expressing my frank opinion of It. The resolution Is against segregating thlw evil in one lit tle tiny spot of this great city, under strict police surveillance and under conditions that would bo Infinitely bet ter for tho city than the present way, with these women even In the most fashionable residence districts." Although the vote that followed showed a majority of those voting In favor of tho. resolutions a protest came from tho audience against putting 8500 people on record as being In favor of what scarcely two per cent approved. At Prohibition Union At a meeting of the Prohibition union In Symphony hall yesterday afternoon the assemblage adopted tho resolutions with wild enthusiasm. The union had appointed a committee to Investigate the rumored opening of the orll at the meeting yesterday after) n Fred F. Wheeler, the chairman, report ed] on what the committee had don,' n, said that they had gone to Mayor Har per and lie had received them cour teously and had listened to their ar guments attentively.

A Cigar Wrapper Often Covers a Multitude of Sins You know quite well that there are many cigars sold for five cents that are very poor quality. They are sold on appearance. A fine appearing wrapper, a handsome gold band or a pretty box-lid may cover a multitude of sins, but it is the filler, the inside of a cigar, that deter- mines its smoking quality. Modern manufacture exemplified in the American Cigar Company's products has grown way above this un- fortunate method of doing business and assures a cigar that is honest all through. The "Triangle A merit mark on a box of cigars means that every sprig of leaf in every cigar in the box was graded especially by experts for that one brand, two years before it was made ; that during this time the leaf * has mellowed in great, clean warehouses in a perfect tem- perature till all its finest qualities are brought to a point of perfection. These are some of the reasons why "Triangle A" cigars smoke with the fine mellow flavor that you thought was only to be found in expensive brands ; why every "Triangle A" cigar has an even flavor and aroma from • end to end; why every cigar of each "Triangle A" brand smokes just the same. "Triangle A" cigars cost you no more than the "mixed" cigars— though they are worth twice as much. Look for the "A" (Triangle A) when you buy cigars. " Triangle A " brands offer the widest obtainable range of choice, and absolutely dependable quality in whatever brand suits your taste. You'll never nnd a better brand to make the test with than * The New CRFMO JL ii/%s J.v\Z*A/ U . |r|, rail IW| $ w Every box is now extra-wrapped in glassine paper, sealed at each end with the "Triangle A" in red.

PATRICK TELLS OF GREAT WORK DONE BY TEACHER Revlowa Persecutions That Have Been Visited on Ireland for Her Faith aa Taught by Saint "Tho wearing of the groen" was the order yoeterday, and many a bit of tho color of tho Emerald Isle wae dis played. Tho story of St. Patrick was told In many churches and the life and history of tho patron saint of Iro land was tho topic of an eloquent ser mon by Bishop Conaty last night at the Cathedral of St. Vlblana. Rev. B. C. Corey, pastor of the Vincent Meth odist church, also preached on St. Pat rick. At St. Patrick's church the day was observed with a sacred musical pro gram in the new church. Rev. Francis J. Conaty preached at the vesper ser vice in the chapel, after which the con gregation assembled in the new church, yet uncompleted, for tho first time. Influences All Nations Bishop Conaty said: "On St. Patrick's day we are face to face with an event and a character, but an event and a character wholly religions, which have had their Influ ence not upon one nation, but upon all the nations. The event Is the religious change of Ireland from an intellectual paganism to the very highest form of perfect Christianity; the character is St. Patrick, the preacher of the gospel of Christ, an apostle sent to the Irish by the great Pontiff Celestine, who ruled the Catholic church as the vicar of Christ and the pope of Rome. St. Patrick was the providential agent by whom Ireland became Christian and through whom tho spirit of the apostle was given to the Irish race, whose chil dren during the last fifteen hundred years have borne the banner of the cross and preached its gospel to all tho nations of the earth. "The story of St. Patrick's life and work Is well known; his birth of noble parents, his Christian training, his cap ture by pirates at 16 years of age and his six years as herdsman for the chieftain of Antrim In the north of lreland; his escape and recapture, his final escape to France and his dream of a mission to the Irish, whose voices he heard calling him to come and preach to them. All of these are inci dents In that early life of this provi dential man. His religious training was received at the hands of saintly religious, among whom St. Martin of Tours was prominent, and kneeling at the feet of Pope Celesttne In 432 he was clothed with the authority of the divine commission which bade him go to the Irish and preach the gospel. The crook and staff of the slave shepherd was changed into the crook and staff of the apostle of Christ, and he went to Ireland to care for the flocks of the Heavenly Master. Sixty years were spent by St. Patrick In his apostolate among the Irish, and at Its close he saw an entire nation which had aban doned Ita Idols and embraced Chris tianity. The altars of the living God replaced the altars or the Druldto sac rifice. Monasteries and schools covered tho land and the light of faith was enkindled in their homes. Civilization Was Advanced "This result in tho lifetime of one man convinces us of the advanced con dition of the civilization of pagan Ire land when St. Patrick entered upon his missionary -work. That he should have left an Island of saints and schol ars advanced In the learning and lit erature of Christianity Is an evldenco that the foundations upon which he built were foundations which evinced a moral and intellectual condition of the people whose apostle he became. Like Abraham, he left his home and kindred to become the father of a nation given to him by God; like Moses, he was sent to lead a people out of the captivity of error and idolatry into the promised land of truth and faith. To his credit and to the credit of the Irish be It said that the entire race was convert ed without the shedding of a drop of martyr blood, but the preserving and conserving of the religion which he taught has been the occasion in the centuries that followed for a martyr dom which has not been equaled in the history of any civilized people. "St. Patrick's day brings us face to face with the Christian history of our people, who as a result of the gospel became a great force in the educa tional work of Christianity. From the sixth to the tenth century Ireland was the home of scholarship, not only the scholarship of the Christian life, but also the scholarship of profane learn ing. Her cloister schools were the most celebrated In all the west and from all parts of the continent students nocked to receive their learning at the hands of the Irish monks and nuns. Modern scholarship is paying Its trib ute to the work of the Irish monastic schools in which the torch of learning was never extinguished and out of which came an army of saints and scholars who at home and abroad stood for the highest Christian life. The monks went forth to teach at the courts of kings, to evangelize the na tions, to establish schools sind universi ties. Columcflle at lona in Scotland, Columbanus and Kobblo In Italy, are typical of the zeal anil devotion of tho Irish monks, who, formed In the schools of Clonmacnolse and Clonfert and Bangor, went through Europe bearing the blessings of tho cross and of knowledge to all peoples with whom they camo in contact. Persecution of Ireland "The Danes were tilled with hatred for the Christian name and wreaked vengeance upon many of the monas teries. They were succeeded In later years by the greed and hate of the Norman and the English, who, even In their Catholic character, were hostile to everything Irish. The reformation brought to the English a hatred for the religion of the Irish which, added to their national hatred, brought the penal laws which form the most In iquitous page in the history of any civilized country. Like the monks who had Bone abroad from the Irish mon asteries to teach Europe the gospel of Christ ami the letters of polite learning, the Irish soldiers In the Cromwelllan days were scattered over Europe, entering the Catholic ajrmlea and lighting the battle of the church against the reformers. The last cen tury brought to the Irish the cruel re sults of Iniquitous land laws and com mercial hatred and forced into exile some of the best blood of Ireland. The atory of the famine, the coercion laws, and the forced emigration is but anoth er page in the history of Ireland'! per secution for her faith. This last act has had the result of scattering the lrish all over the world, particularly ii this western continent, to which they have brought their religion, the relig ion of Christ as taught to their fath ers by St. Patrick. Through 1600 years, in glory and in defeat, In sunshine and in darkness, amidst the bitterest of persecution*, there bas been a race ■ ■ fidelity to the cross and the shamrock which has not its equal in the national life of f.ny other people. God gave to our fathers the gift of faith and our greatest pride is in the fact that our fathers have sacredly and Jealously guarded the gift. Honor St. Patrick "We are Christians today and Cath olics, and we honor the name of St. Patrick and the Roman pontiff who commissioned him to preach to our fathers. We worship the same God, we adore the same Christ, we partici pate In the tame sacraments, we recog nize the same authority, we hold un tarnished and unbroken the same sa cred deposit of faith, and for this we are grateful to God, and under God to St. Patrick, the apostle by whom faith came to our fathers and to us. "We have a duty to perform, and that Is to be true to St. Patrick and his teachings, true to our faith, true to the God whom our fathers learned to love, and true to the cross for which our people were persecuted and for which thousands of them have died. "We love the native land from which we sprang, the native land, if not our own that of our fathers, and we pray God today to bless it with a renewed strength of loyalty to the church and loyalty to the best interests of the freedom of the people. We never can be sufficiently grateful to God for the privilege of holy faith, and we have reason to be proud of the inheritance of our fathers, the land of faith and of courage in its practice, the one land in all the world that has never turned Its back upon the altar of Christ nor faltered in the fulfillment of its duty to God and to. the holy church founded in the blood of his divine Son."
